These two pocket watches belonged to my grandfather, Grover Garrett Bailey (the man in the middle in the photograph). He was a conductor on a railroad which must have run through Missouri, Arkansas, and Indiana, considering the places where my dad, Roger Andrew Bailey (pictured on the right), lived as a child. I am not certain of their age, but my dad was born in 1897, so I am sure that they are about 100 years old.

    A very creative arrangement and a lovely tribute to your grandfather! Congratulations on your challenge placement and feature!

  • Sorry I’m late replying to this. Both my mom and my brother passed away in July – My dad passed away in 1967. As we were going through things in the house, we found the 2 watches. As soon as the challenge was launched, I knew exactly what I would do.
